Late yesterday it was reported that Bret Michaels, who just recently underwent emergency appendectomy surgery, was rushed to the hospital after he suffered a life-threatening brain hemorrhage:
Bret Michaels’s health has taken a turn for the worse, PEOPLE has learned: After an excruciating headache late Thursday night, the star was rushed to an undisclosed hospital where doctors discovered he suffered a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding at the base of his brain stem), according to a source close to the situation. Michaels, 47, is currently in critical condition. “After several CAT scans, MRIs and an angiogram, [doctors] decided to keep Michaels in the ICU and are running several tests to determine the cause. [It] will be touch and go for the next few days while he is under intense observation,” the source says.
Thankfully, according to his father Wally Sychek, Bret is “doing good” altho he remains in Intensive Care. Here is the latest on Bret‘s condition as reported by his father:
Bret Michaels’ father is speaking out for the first time since his rocker son was rushed to the hospital with a brain hemorrhage. In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, Wally Sychak reveals he spoke to his son by phone on Friday, says Bret is doing well, but is still in intensive care. “I talked to him this morning,. He sounded upbeat and positive but they had him sedated,” Sychak told RadarOnline.com. “But he’s doing good. He sounded like my son.” Sychak told RadarOnline.com that Bret’s two daughters, ex-girlfriend, Kristi Lynn Gibson, and his tour manager are currently at the hospital with him. While doctors have not determined what caused Bret’s brain to begin bleeding, they all seem to agree that it—along with his recent appendectomy—are complications relating to his type 1 diabetes, Sychak told RadarOnline.com. “We’re all keeping our fingers crossed and saying our prayers,” Sychak said, adding, “He just needs to be quiet now and get rested.”
Wow! This is really scary stuff. I was very worried that the news would not be good in the wake of this brain hemorrhage but thank goodness Bret is doing well. I’m sure he would greatly benefit and appreciate all of our thoughts, prayers and well wishes. Bret Michaels has survived much in his 47 years, here’s hoping he’ll be able to beat this illness (or whatever) and be back to his rockin’ ol’ self again very soon. Heal well, Bret!
